New to pastel

Hi all,

I started learning pastel painting in November and, for now, I am mostly doing portraits and figures. I am enjoying the medium so far, and I am hoping to share some of my painting on the forum and get some feedback.

Re: New to pastel

Welcome to WC!

Lots of fine folks here, you will meet many of them as you browse about. Sharing, learning and teaching others is the best way to fan the creative flames.

We are always glad to see new members, hope you have time to explore all the different Forums. There are all levels of artists here, working in virtually all mediums. It's worth exploring the full list of the forums. Read the posting rules at the top of the forums as there may be restricted posting.

There are many free tutorials available, and the friendly folks here will try to help you with any questions.

Be sure to review the guidelines for commercial uses, and for the use of images in the Reference Library..

Check out the Photography Forums, too. No camera is required! Many of us just like to look at and discuss phots. There are some very talented folks there. The Abstract & Contemporary Forum is where I am usually found the rest of the time, we are a fun and supportive groups there.

Looking forward to seeing your art.
Looking forward getting to know you!

Life is good!
Very good indeed.
